books are breath


A life without books is a very hollow existence indeed. Nothing else has the power to make me laugh out loud, cry like a baby, or scream in rage like reading a book can. I am open to all genres and am willing to give almost anything a try, even if it's outside my normal scope. My faves are thrillers/suspense but I am also into paranormal, drama, chick lit and YA. This is my first blog, so forgive my ignorance and if you see something I can improve, do tell. :) 

kinda review of Panic by Lauren Oliver

Panic - Lauren Oliver

I wanted to like this book. In fact, I was extremely excited to get it from my library after having it on hold for a while. The sad truth is, it was sooo slow and painfully boring that I just couldn't justify wasting any more time on it. The writing was stilted, almost reminding me of someone in elementary school writing a story. I thought the premise was very interesting but the author just did not flesh out the idea in a way that hooked me into the book. I would not recommend this book to anyone :(
